M.K.Ciurlionis Painting Gallery
The painting of Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis enriched
Lithuanian fine arts giving a special authority to it. The universality and new
plastic discoveries of his works surpassed his contemporaries and merged with
the sphere of world's art. Not only did Ciurlionis attract everybodies attention
with his unique individuality, but he was also one of those who proclaimed the concept
of Lithuanian national art of the twentieth century.

A Short Survey
The beginning of the twentieth century is rather chaotic.
Thousands of things I have seen made me an impression that painting tries
to break out, to struggle through prevailing boundaries, but still makes no progress.
- All in all Ciurlionis painted about 300 paintings, 164 of which you can find
in this website. If you would like to find a certain picture quickly and easily
(by knowing its name) you may want to use
Alphabetical Index for this. You can also follow our
guide, which will lead you through all the gallery, divided
into three "halls".
- Browsing this gallery you can click on images to see their full original view,
which in most cases is big enough to exceed the size of your screen, so I would
recommend using a higher resolution or "Full Screen" mode if possible.
- After watching a picture press the single arrow on the left menu
(analogous to "Back" button) - that's how you will return to the gallery.
- The fastest way to download a picture is to right-click its shortcut and
select "Save Target As..." from the context menu.
